A business story, with Wm. Garwood and Violet Mersereau in the leads. The hero believes he has killed his employer's son in a holdup, but the latter turns up unhurt. Later both hero and son are unjustly suspected of theft from the office safe, but another clerk proves guilty. The plot is fairly strong, but not in any way exceptional.
